Dean Rock says Global Positioning System incident was 'irrelevant'

Dean Rock says Global Positioning System incident was 'irrelevant'”

Barney Rock, the former All-Ireland victor and All-Star, has outlined the physical and psychological difficulties his son, Dean, had to overcome before becoming Dublin's championship- winning hero on Sunday.

The match victor was not affected by the effort to unsettle him and converted the 76th minute free into a point.

While Rock lined up to take the penalty that would ultimately seal the game, Mayo's Lee Keegan can be seen throwing his Global Positioning System tracker in the path of the kick.

While Rock's successful effort proved to be the difference in one of the most exciting finals in recent memory, McCarthy was keen to point out that his colleague had been interfered with in the build-up to the crucial kick.

Since the incident, Rock spoke to OffTheBall.com, saying that the thrown Global Positioning System was "irrelevant".

A black object appears to have shown up near the Ballymun Kickhams star's legs just as he went to land the score, with many believing it was a Global Positioning System unit that had been launched onto the field.

"I was just concentrated on my own strike and the execution of my kick and once I did that I knew the ball would go over the bar. As I said, it's irrelevant so there's no major issue with it".
